The registrations will be held at the middle school near the football field.

This is a full-contact tackle football program. Participants will wear full pads and will be coached on the fundamentals of tackle football, through practices and games.

The program will begin the week of Aug. 1, with clinics and player evaluations. It will wrap up in October with championship and consolation games. Game schedules will consist of five league games and at least one playoff game, with a maximum of three playoff games.

Practices begin the week of Aug. 5 and will generally be two to three nights per week throughout the season.

The Aug. 1 clinic schedule will run from 5:30-7 p.m. for fifth graders and 7:15-8:45 p.m. for sixth graders. The evaluations will be held on Aug. 7 and Aug. 8. The evaluations will be from 5:30-7 p.m. for fifth graders and 7:15-8:45 p.m. for sixth graders. The clinic and evaluations will be held at the middle school near the football field.
